|Michael Graupe||Via Aflenzer Staritzen |
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2012
|From Seebergsattel climbed Aflenzer Staritzen, then Hohe Weichsel and Ringkamp before making it to the top of Hochschwab. Descended via Voisthaler Huette to Seewiesen. Couldn't catch a ride back up to Seebergsattel, so had to walk up for an additional hour. About 11h car-to-car.|

|I've conquered this summit twice.|
First time it was in November, 2004. We startedfrom Seewiesen, and went to the "Unterstandsütte" on Mitteralpe (it is marked on the F&B map). We thought it was an ordinary hut, but it appeared to be a simple rain shelter only. The rain was falling, so it was a help anyway, but not the best place for overnighting. Next day we went to Voisthaler Hütte, Trawiessattel, G'hackte, all the way in heavy rain. Finally we reached the Fleischer-Biwak, which was already full with about 6 or 8 Slovakians. We had a rest there, and proceeded to Schiestl Haus to spend the night. Next morning I visited the summit in total fog, and later we went down to Seewiesen on the normal route.
Next March I was there again with three students of mine. We went from Seewiesen to the Voisthaler Hütte, and slept there in the winterraum. Next day we visited the summit, which was a little bit hard without ski, and returned to the hut. This time the weather was perfect.

|We had a wonderful day here - alone. It is a nice classical route in 6th grade, some pitons and BH, good opportunities to place your pro in the easier parts. Left our rucksacks at the base: climbing south walls the 3rd day in hot weather (38 degree Celsius in Vienna), we didn't need water anymore. :)|
And it probably was dehydratation that in the 4th pitch, I headed perhaps too much to the right, found no belay and followed the pitons of some difficult foolness. After 50m I couldn't move any further due to rope friction and did a belay in a small hole (Sanduhr). The rest was O.K., just the belay after the 1st pitch is really poor. And the descent is a small story for itself, as one has to abseil 2-3 times, at last through a water canyon. But after being in the sun so long, one is even thankful for it.
As I said, we had a wonderful day here. Really.

|Very long, but beautiful hike with perfect weather on the first day. From Aflenz to Seebergsattel by bus, then on the ridge of the Aflenzer Staritzen to the Schiestlhaus.|
On the next day a sudden fall of temperature, bad weather with rain, strong winds and short thunderstorm caused a very fast descent through the Fölzalm to the bottom of valley
